MacArthur is a perfect example of someone with tremendous public speaking ability, but who is not analytically smart enough to realize that he's teaching nonsense.

And so is John Piper. I just picked up a new book, Evangelical Dictionary of Theology for $2.49 at my favorite bookstore, (St. Vincent DePaul thrift store). I'm out of bookshelf space so I told LOML I will "thin the herd" a bit to make room. So first to go is a pristine copy on John Piper's "What Jesus Demands of the World". I had read the book until I ran into the nonsense Doug speaks of. Piper says the world must repent believe in Jesus; Jesus demands this of them. Yet this is impossible, according to the Calvinist (Piper) unless God first regenerates them. So, as is my habit, at the point of nonsense I somehow lost interest in the book.
